About the Start Up Festival

The third edition of the Startup Festival was held between the 5th and 6th of October 2023, at the Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre (MFCC) and the adjacent park in Ta’ Qali, Malta.

The festival aimed at offering a matchmaking opportunity for startups and scaleups looking at raising funds via local and international business angels and VCs.

Launch Of Stakeholder Consultation For Malta Startup Framework

During the festival, Malta Enterprise announced that it will be launching a stakeholder consultation process for a national Malta Startup Framework, creating a framework that is really designed to cater exclusively for the needs of start-ups.

The framework will be divided into three main thematic areas being:

  • Equity Simplification,
  • Fiscal Environment, and
  • Human capital

Each of these areas will look into a number of components such as share awards and share options, engagement with apprentices and interns to engage more actively with start-ups, support further R&D work carried by these companies, skills development and attraction of talent.
